• The Mountaintop (Martin Luther King Commemoration)

    March 22, 2018 – April 1, 2018

Presented by:
Short North Stage
About the Event:

Short North Stage and the King Arts Complex will commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination with playwright Katori Hall’s gripping re-imagination of the last night of Dr. King’s life. While a storm rages outside his hotel room in Memphis, a mysterious stranger arrives, forcing Dr. King to confront his destiny and his legacy to his people. Magical and haunting. “Even before the first flash of lightning—and there will be plenty of that before evening’s end—an ominous electricity crackles through the opening moments of THE MOUNTAINTOP.” —NY Times. NOTE: A special memorial performance of The Mountaintop will be presented on Tuesday, April 3—the eve of the anniversary of Dr. King’s death.Supported by a grant from PNC Arts Alive.
